Open House for New Students

Open House for New Students

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Brothers and potential new members of the Rutgers Cook Chapter assisted deans and Rutgers CORPs in working the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences open house on March 9, 2013.  Brothers assisted tour guides in their tours of the campus, answered potential and admitted students questions, and  helped deans and professors run their academic informational sessions.  There were over 1000 people in attendance and through the brothers' participation, everything ran smoothly.  Their volunteering was pivotal in making the open house a huge success.

Special Friends' Day

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

In mid-March, Rutgers University hosted its 21st annual Special Friends Day, a day when Rutgers students have the opportunity to bond and hang out with special needs children during fun filled activities hosted by various student groups on campus. A DJ plays music the whole day, the pool is open for all to enjoy (with lifeguards present), and there are arts and crafts activities galore. This year's theme was "Ancient Civilizations" and so AZ brothers set up an arts and crafts table at which they helped children decorate paper pyramids to celebrate the rich Mayan Culture...

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On Friday March 22nd, 13 brothers went to the Country Day Montessori Preschool to give them a lesson about chickens and pigs. We brought four chicks and two pigs. The kids were thrilled to pet the animals and the brothers enjoyed spending time with the kids. It is a great opportunity to introduce kids to agriculture when some of them probably never touched a farm animal. We have developed a great partnership with the preschool and hope to go back for Earth Day to plant flowers.

New Member Project!

New Member Project!

New Member Project: A tradition that has continued for many years in the Cook Chapter was quite a success this semester. The new members and their bigs, in addition to any other brothers who chose to participate, came out to the beloved Rutgers Gardens and helped put mulch down around the daffodil beds that will be blooming soon. Also, considering the damage of Hurricane Sandy, Helyar Woods, a staple of the Gardens, were significantly damaged. Many trees had fallen down and the timber could now be used to make mulch.

A few weeks ago, members from the Alpha Zeta Cal Epsilon Chapter spent an overcast Saturday morning picking oranges at California State University, Fresno's current president's house.

With hundreds of oranges to pick, AZ members partnered up with members from Alpha Gamma Rho, Plant Science students and 4-H. Together, we gleaned the orange trees and socialized over coffee and donuts.

Valentine's Day Cards

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

In order to get ready for Valentine's Day, the brothers of AZ Cook chapter decided to make Valentine's cards for the pediatric ward of St. Peter's Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.  These themed cards varied in colors, designs and heart-warming messages.  The Brothers felt that by making these cards, they would be able to put a smile on a child's face.  The brothers really were able to showcase their creativity while designing the cards with stickers, stamps, markers and cut-outs.  Through card-making, the brothers were able to make children smile on Valentine’s Day.  This chapter has a lot of heart and definitely extended their kindness to children who know that the brothers of Alpha Zeta really care.
